Ford has launched the 2017 EcoSport in the Indian market and has priced it at Rs 7.31 lakhs (All-india ex-showroom). The compact SUV is being offered in five petrol and diesel variants and across seven different colour schemes. We have already driven the new car and you can read what our experts have to say here or by locating it in the reviews section of our mobile app.

The biggest change to the car’s exterior is a completely new face. The grille is in line with Ford’s latest design while the head lamps have become smaller with a wedge-like shape that sit on the outer edges of the face. This combination has given the EcoSport a mean and purposeful look in terms of appearance. The car now comes fitted with new 17-inch wheels and the increase in size is quite noticeable in the overall appearance. There are no changes mad to the rear of the vehicle, but if you look closely, the bigger wheel size does enhance the appearance.

The cabin retains the same layout and elements, but it now gets a massive touchscreen infotainment system with SYNC3 technology. Also adding to the new elements is a slightly revised steering wheel as well as new instrument cluster.

Powering this 2017 EcoSport is a 1.5-litre four-cylinder diesel as well as a new 1.5-litre three-cylinder petrol mill. The diesel produces 98bhp/205Nm while the petrol is good for 121bhp/150Nm. It’s a five-speed manual doing duty in both cars while the petrol can also be had with a six-speed AT. There is no word on the 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine for this 2017 MY vehicle but is likely to show up sometime next year.

The EcoSport competes with the likes of the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Honda WR-V, Tata Nexon and the Mahindra TUV300 in the compact SUV segment.
